“When the ink licks the pen, story begins. The lyric finds the rhymes and rhythms”, said Masum, a well-known lyricist of the country. With his lyrics mostly Bappa Mazumder made some remarkable compositions which really whispers in the ear. The songs like ‘Rater Train’, ‘Dhulo Pora Chithi’ and many other lyrics like ‘Kokhono Ichchhe Hoy’, ‘Chokheri Jole’, and recently ‘Akta Chaya’, among others, written by Masum already found the colours of compositions and made a signature mark.
On the other hand, he also wrote lyrics for some of the prominent bands of the country such as Souls, Ark, Prometheus, as well as popular artistes like, James, Manam Ahmed, Andrew Kishore, Baby Naznin, Mehrin, Kona, Kaniz Shuborna and Alam Ara Minu, among others.
